I started these beach-like socks over the summer and can not believe how long they took to finish. I used Madeline Tosh Sock with size 0 needles. I swore the entire time that they would be too small for my mom but when I put them on the sock blockers they were perfect. Now even with size 0 needles I can normally whip out a pair of socks in short order. I swear my knitting mojo left the building this past summer.
I woke up to 52 degrees this morning. I think it will return with necessity of keeping warm soon.
